Captain Thomas H. Garahan from 'Easy' Company, 2nd Battalion, 398th Infantry Regiment, 100th Infantry Division, 7th U.S. Army, holding an American flag through the window of a photography shop on Rue du Colonel Teyssier in the centre of Bitches, France. VARIOUS: NEWLY colourised photographs of WORLD WAR II showcase America?s first black marine and Hollywood legend Clark Gable during his service. In one image, a captain and medics treated a wounded soldier of the 1st US Infantry Division at Omaha Beach, France. The soldier was wrapped in an army blanket whilst given an emergency blood transfusion. In another, Frederick C. Branch ? the first black American soldier to be commissioned into the Marine Corps ? was given his Second Lieutenant?s bars, pinned onto his uniform in Charlotte, North Carolina, by his wife. Others showed Sergeant J.S Wilson painting a pin-up on a B-17 Bomber in Eniwetok in the Pacific Ocean, and famed Gone With The Wind actor Clark Gable posing in uniform with bullet rounds slung over his shoulders. Colouriser Jean-Marie Gillet (39) from Saclay in the suburbs of Paris, France, brought the stunning images to life after getting into colourisation when he transformed a selection of family photos several years ago. Jean-Marie spends several hours transforming each image using Photoshop and a tablet and stylus. mediadrumworld.com/Jean-Marie Gillet/Signal Corps Archives
